The Governor balanced the state’s budget, made our roads safer, fully funded our public schools, and put a stop to wasting taxpayer dollars. Governor Kelly spearheaded historic economic success for Kansas. I’m glad to join her team to build a better future for our state. Kansas needs her continued leadership.”
“I’m honored to have former Attorney General Stephan’s support and grateful to have him on the team,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “Our bipartisan coalition has one goal in mind – a better future for Kansas. In 2022 and beyond, we will work to continue the bipartisan progress of the last four years and deliver for Kansans.”
This latest endorsement comes after former Republican Representative Jan Kessinger announced his endorsement of Governor Kelly, as did former Republican Kansas Insurance Commissioner, Sandy Praeger. Attorney General Robert Stephan joins a long list of Republicans supporting Governor Kelly’s re-election.
